At the request of Intricate Knot, here is one of the insect shots from the trip to Mount Pollux.
I guess there are worse things than being called a root-maggot fly…and most likely the maggot behavior has earned the name.
For most people, I would guess this to be a little too up close and personal, but I find insects, and flies in particular, to be quite interesting for their body structure. No doubt everything is there for a good reason as nature and natural selection don’t have much use for niceties. My favorite fly appendage is the haltere. As I get older and am having balance issues, I could use a couple. 🙂
